there. this is a two-level ferry. and when that boat hit, everybody went tumbling down. now, the ntsb is sending a team to investigate. we hope to get more details. ashleigh? >> and obviously, this is probably way too early, but is there talk down at that location about this being a mechanical error or human error at this point? >> reporter: of course, those are all the questions everybody's asking. you know, these passengers did tell us, though, the captain came out right away and tried to help. certainly the captain will be interviewed. we'll find out what he has to say. >> and then what about just the response? i was watching earlier. i have to admit, i was horrified when i saw helicopter pictures putting blankets over people because it appeared at one point as though there were fatalities, but these were people who were just being blanketed for warmth. we've got to be very cautious to let you know those pictures show people who are injured and not killed. >> reporter: right. right. so far we have heard no one was killed in this accident. we are not hearing that as of yet. it is a

electri leaking el, the ntsb brought the ballotries to their lab to disassemble them. some have been speculating excess voltage could have started the fire but the ntsb told us today, but examination of the flight recorder from the jalb 787 airplane indicate the batteries did not exceed the designed voltage of 32 volts. these are the charred remains of the battery that started the fire in boston two weeks ago and caused smoke damage to a flight. it's interesting. this 787 dream liner program was actually launched back in 2004 with an order from the airline, but their dream liners and everyone else's dreamliners have been grounded by governments around the globe. experts are saying the only way to get these planes air worthy again is to fix the faulty batteries. >> they can't switch out to other kinds of batteries. that would really add too much weight and they wouldn't be able to produce the amount of power necessary to drive this aircraft. >> reporter: now, boeing refused earlier this week to speculate about what the issue is with the batteries, but they made clear that despite the

is on the scene for us. alison, how did this happen? >> that's what crime scene investigators and ntsb are trying to figure out. there's going to be a press conference in minutes given by the ntsb. everyone is trying to figure out how this ferry carrying 300 passengers crashed into the dock in new york be city around 8:45's this morning. not only did it send passengers flying in the air inside this boat, it's caused a huge gash in the hull of the boat itself. the coast guard says a tracking device shows that this vessel was coming in too fast, that it was coming in up to 15 miles per hour, which the coast guard official says is too fast when you're docking a boat. we did talk with the head of the company who says that the captain who was at the control of this vessel was in control or in command of this vessel when it did crash hitting one loading dock and then hitting a second loading dock. this captain, by the way, has been with this company for about ten years. a breathalyzer was performed on the captain. it came back negative and preliminary breathalyzers were conducted on five crew members a

in the future. the ntsb is considering some new regulations that would require electric and hybrid cars to emit noise to make conditions safer for pedestrians who may not hear the cars coming. it would also mean a congressional mandate. the sound would need to be loud enough for people to hear it over street noise when the car is going less than 18 miles an hour. >> you know who has a story about this? >> lawrence does, ironically. what a great segue. i guess you had an issue in the parking lot. >> i was out shopping in a grocery store and i almost got run over by a prius. i didn't look, you know, you're listening for the car. because they are so silent i didn't hear it. so that's a concern. >> sure you didn't have knight ranger on in your car? >> i should have taken off the headphones.

airliners. well, boeing says it is working with ntsb investigators, looking into monday's fire on a japan airlines 787 at boston's logan airport. the fire involved the batteries in the belly of the plane used to power the aircraft while on the ground. and in a statement, boeing adds, "nothing that we've seen in this case indicates a relationship with any previous 787 power system events." as for the second japan airlines dreamliner that was spewing fuel at logan airport yesterday, it was a pilot from another plane that alerted the control tower that the 787 was losing fuel. and then the control tower notified the unsuspecting j.a.l. pilot. the ntsb says it's not looking into the fuel leak which j.a.l. officials are deeming a mechanical problem. and boston airport officials say there was no leak in the fuel tank, but the plane was venting fuel, which is the aircraft's way to dump excess fuel. but it's not usually seen on the runway. so after four hours, the dreamliner was checked out and cleared to fly. now, the japanese government told cnn they have asked airlines to inspect planes for ba
the ntsb is now starting to look at exactly the air worthiness issues, what was behind it, they've got investigation teams that are on their way to boston. and they're going to be asking the tough questions, wolf. they're going to want to know why brand-new aircraft, seemingly have recurring problems, albeit, of a different nature. are these the little glitches that boeing says they are, that happen with all new major complicated planes, or is there something else that's happening? there are lots of rumors, wolf, about whether the wiring has been done properly, whether this has been done properly or the other. so that's the issue at the moment. >> i assume, richard, there's been a backlash already, from the airlines that have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to purchase these dreamliners from boeing? >> yes. and the serious part about that is the airlines are used to glitches. so it's not like you or me, the airlines expect a certain amount of headache, toothache, pain and misery with a new plane, a new model. but they don't expect it to be of this level. aog is the phrase they us

, grounded all 24 of their 787s through thursday. the ntsb, faa, and boeing are sending investigators to japan. this latest problem is raising more questions surrounding the dreamliner's use of lithium ion batteries. >> we've seen some major problems with lithium batteries across -- transported and used in our computers. i'm sure the faa is going to look at the quality systems of mering with the batteries used on this airplane. >> last week a worker discovered a fire in the belly of a japan airline of 787 at boston logan airport. the charred battery manufactured by a japanese company is now being an litzed by the ntsb. the faa approved the lithium batteries because boeing installed specific safety measures to address potential overheating problems. the latest incident is ut approximating passengers on edge. >> just like anything new, you have to get the kinks out of it. >> reporter: the transportation secretary is not worried. >> i believe this plane is safe and i would have absolutely no reservation of boarding one of these planes and taking a flight. >> reporter: the only u.s. opera
of them seemingly quite serious, like the fuel leak, will be giving cause for concern. that's why the ntsb here in the united states is looking at worthiness, at what happened, and is certainly not going to be taking this very lightly. these were two serious incidents that happened. >> and what is so special, what is so revolutionary about these planes? >> the way it is built. no aluminum, carbon fibers, composite, the plane is lighter. it has new engines. it has bigger windows. it has new avionics, everything about what the plane is made from and the way it is made. boeing has subcontracted large parts of the manufacturer to different companies, particularly japan and elsewhere. the parts are flown into the united states where they're assembled in the carolinas and out in washington state. so the totality of the plane is a revolution for boeing, in how it is made, what it is made, and that's why perhaps there are these problems. but, here is the important thing to bear in mind, would i get on a dreamliner tonight? across the ocean, yes. no question about it. >> i was going to ask you, you
has grounded the planes, listen to the ntsb's chairman who talks about how serious this incident now is. >> this is an unprecedented event. we are very concerned. as i mentioned in the beginning, we do not expect to see fire events onboard aircraft. this is a very serious air safety concern the faa has taken very serious action. >> reporter: and that, of course, feeds into how detailed and difficult it is going to be to actually put this problem right. they just don't know. >> richard, what are people saying there? do they think the dreamliner will be able to survive? >> reporter: i talked to one senior aviation official, international aviation official here. i asked exactly that question. yes is the short answer because we've seen it with the dc 10 and concord and other cases. what they have to do is find out what's wrong and put it right. the difficulty is the time and the expense in doing it. if it was a mature aircraft, that would be even a greater question. since it's a brand new plane with 800 orders still or 750 still to be delivered, there's no question that boeing is going t
